Blog Favorites: Recycled Crafts

  • Recycle town made using cereal boxes, scissors, markers, and tape from No Time for Flashcards. Allie even includes books and a song to go along with this activity!


  • Make a marble run using old toilet paper rolls as shown at Adventures of a Flake. I’ve seen toilet paper roll marble runs before, but I love the stability of this one since the rolls are taped to the wall (use painting tape to protect walls), and the idea of adding cups to catch the marbles is also great!
